What do you do?
Ram Dass said, "We're all just walking each other home" and I am creating a virtual 'home' for disenfranchised, unemployed Baby Boomers by crowdsourcing a movement.
While I don't dwell on it, my husband and I went through a very difficult time due to his loss of employment at age 51 one week after 9/11. His loss of income compounded by serious health issues (two back surgeries and a hip replacement, just to name a few) and additional catastrophic financial setbacks resulted in a complete disruption of our life. We tried to pay all of our debts, but ended up being completely wiped out (short and long-term savings, life insurance/disability policy, etc.), ultimately we were forced into bankruptcy. Our story has been replicated across the country.
What should we read?
"Anything You Want" by Derek Sivers; "Cognitive Surplus" by Clay Shirky; "Unretirement" by Chris Farrell; "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" by Dale Carnegie
